Barry's Electric Workshop - Discogs

I was swimming around the net (as you do after a days work) and I was advised to look at by Adamski. A great way to find out information about all your favourite recording artists.

I did a search for Filaria and was happy to find that he was there, both as an old Electrotoxic artist and as a Bugklinik artist, then I noticed that I am there too - as he made a remix of one of my old tunes (86Clari) and he put it on his album.

I like the fact that the older original artwork for the EP is there - it's dodgy and lo-Rez but I like it like that. I like the new cover too, the full colour photo of a creak/crack/pillar with light shining out- but still prefer the original - nostalgia....aaah the good ol' days...

New - dodgy stereo artist!

Colin 'Kidd Dynamo' Campbell has just opened a new account for a new solo project he started recently called 'RADIAL NERVE'. Colin was not feeling too well and was unable to play all his instruments as much as he wanted to - but thanks to home recording equipment, patience and friends, e has made some new music which is slightly different from his usual Kidd Dynamo fare.

Go check it out and enjoy.

In other news The Translucent Knees are to be played by Spine Radio. More on Spine:
"Spine Radio is a podcast based out of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Co-hosts Steve and Jeannine shoot the shit about local goings on and maybe even some current events. Check out the real Spine Radio website at"

Thanks to all those who are sending photos from the show the other night. Shout-outs to Isobutane and Itch My HaHaHa. Here's hoping there are more shows to look forward to in the future.

NewNew festival 2006

Thursday night was a lot of fun. NewNew was off to a great start.
The soundmen got all the equipment soundchecked really quickly and there were no problems even with a language barrier. I was in a small room with Player One (UK) and Isobutane (SL).

In the main room were rechenzentrum , namosh, Candie Hank, Midi Lidi. Liger were supposed to be performing, as were The Greatest Hits Collective but unfortunately I didn't catch any evidence of them playing, but I do know that some of them were in attendence. They were not missed too badly though as all the sets I caught (a little wandering to and fro was needed) were super quality.

i will have to get a whole bunch of new records as my head is now spinning after a great night full of fancy tones.

I think that everyone I met that night had a super time, there were lots of dancers, but slightly more beard-strokers. This may have been in part due to the fact that there was a seminar given on Ableton. At least it wasn't a total geek-fest. In between hit-and-run attacks by hairy young men crawling up the side of the stage to see what hardware and software was being used and abused there were bobbing silhouettes and nodding heads.

A big shout out to Abdul, who was busting moves with a disturbing amount of energy. Respect to your free-form expression. Keep it real.

I think this facial expression worn by Mark really sums up how I felt about the show though.

Out of focus, but fun nonetheless...

Prague. Old man singing and jamming along with a CD. What a groover. One of many buskers plying their trade in the city. Very photogenic. I hope to return again soon.

Kidd Dynamo update.

Colin... the Paul McCartney bastard, yesterday.

Whilst typing various words into YouTube the other day searching for amusement, I came across this little clip. Worth checking out for any Kidd Dynamo enthusiasts out there, even if it is too short.
